Foursquare Tips

  • Definitely the best Italian restaurant in LA.
  • Service was great. We order the fillet steak was one of the best steaks I've ever tasted. Also the fettuccine was amazing. Teramso was great . Definitely I'm coming back!
  • The food is incredibly good!
  • Sub-par food and verrry rude employees the two times I've been.
  • Langostini!!
  • Beyond amazing and what a beautiful adorably venue. Order the ravioli tasting app. Pumpkin one is ah-am-zing
  • Truffle-lovers paradise. Get the risotto or carpaccio, but not both - that's just greedy. Classic fettuccine bolognese is delicious. Love the atmosphere here, especially the dramatic Italian accents.
  • We were warmly greeted by your staff and offered one of the front tables, which I was eyeing. Instead of choosing our meal, I told your staff to bring us what they recommended.
  • What can I say? The dinner was delicious! You have won me over for life.
  • Your staff is attentive and friendly, the ambiance is romantic and inviting, and your food is divine. I will be back soon and bringing with me new faces.
  • It was my first time to Via Veneto and it will not be the last. The food was excellent and I thought our server was wonderful as well.
  • Lobster Ravioli, Mushroom Felet, Quail Parpadelle and ZD Pino Noir and you are good to go.
  • The worst service ever ! 1 1/2 hour wait to eat pasta the waiters extremely rude and way over priced.
  • The best 'melt in the mouth' Ravioli I've ever had. Get a selection for starters.
  • Portobello salad with fried arugula is a must have!
  • Who cares if this old-fashioned Italian restaurant is frequently crowded, noisy and a little pricey? You wont find a more authentic bowl of pumpkin ravioli or thick-cut rib eye in Santa Monica.
  • Quail pappardelle (often a special, not usually on the menu if I recall) is TO DIE FOR. Special seafood salad also stunning. Pasta dishes are generally better than mains but the steak is an exception
  • Went there for a birthday dinner. Consensus: absolutely delicious! One friend said it was the best Italian food he had ever had in the USA!
  • Food was good, yet overpriced. Found this place accidentally when looking for something empty and quiet. Waiter was rather pretentious; restaurant guests included women with tones of plastic surgery..
